Hey everyone! Due to recent events, I can't call myself administrator of LBPCentral for much longer. Don't worry, I'm not going away entirely! Due to an opportunity I've recently come into, I just can't be the guy to manage LBPCentral anymore.

So, we're bringing on someone new! Well, he's not exactly new - he's been around for longer than many of us. He's done a lot of work as a Staff member, he's familiar with the community, and he's quite brilliant to boot. Please join me in welcoming warlord_evil (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/member.php?4945-warlord_evil) to to the team!

I will be around to help with the transition, but from this point forward consider him the go-to man for any questions, concerns, or other issues you may have. Good luck warlord_evil! :)

War's been my friend since the LittleBigStore had costumes you could count on your left hand. He's wickedly artistic, unflinchingly kind, just the right amount of eccentric, and while he may not strike people as the techy type, once you see his work with webpage and video game design you'll be floored.

And you, CC, you'll always be my little admin - seriously, though, it's sad to see you retire.

Keep us updated, will ya? I can only imagine what kind of "opportunity" awaits you but I'd like to think it furthers your typical ambition (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?20026-Creator-Spotlight-6-ConfusedCartman).

Thanks for everything in these last 4 years CC!
It has been a hell of a ride my friend!
Best wishes and good luck!

And a big big big welcome to Warlord-Evil. :)
You've come from a looooong road.
Best wishes for you too

I'd like to thank CC as well, for all the hard and dedicated work he's done, not all of it was always seen either, a lot of great things were done behind-the-scenes to help out the community. :)

Thanks for giving me this position CC, I won't let you down! :D

Sorry to see you go CC! Then again.... maybe you aren't going anywhere at all. ;) Either way, good luck in your future endeavors!

And also a BIG congrats to warlord - you're going to be awesome! You've been one of the most dedicated members of LBPC for a long time and you certainly deserve it. :royalty:

Sorry to see you retire CC, but its good that you're not leaving entirely. C:
Also a big congrats on your new position Warlord! :D
(Dam, al these different colored names don't look right. Taffey with blue instead of black, Warlord with a green one and CC with a normal one. What kind of strange dream is this? D: )
JK guys, good luck with your new jobs! :p

Wow, what strange alternate reality have I woken up in, where CC is not running LBPC? :p

Oh well, we'll just have to learn to cope. Thanks, and good luck with that opportunity of yours!

Thank You CC for years and years of behind the scenes hard work and in front of the scenes dedication and good judgement. Sad to see you step down but so happy for you at the same time. :)

Congrats Warlord! Well deserved & I know you'll do an excellent job captaining the big ship that is LBPC. :D

This is madness! I can not cope with change!

Then again, I could take a guess and assume this was due to a particular job that you wanted all those years ago... That would make sense.

Still, thanks for four years of keeping this place up, and I'll try to learn how to deal with such a transition :p

Oh, and to warlord-evil. AS one evil warlord to another, you have certainly made great leaps in your plans of world domination. :kz:

Wow did not expect this to happen. Will feel odd for CC not to be administrator anymore. but that's life i suppose. but you did good CC, thanks for your work. :)

Also good luck Warlord. And well... at least i can tell anyone now that i have the LBPC administrator on my PSN friend list. :P *mew

Wow MB, so ends one chapter huh? Thanks man for all that you've done with and for LBPC and the community as a whole. Good luck with your future endeavors and don't be a stranger. It's going to be hard not seeing your name in green any more.
Warlord, I don't know whether to congratulate you or feel for you, maybe a little of both and I'll try not to bombard you with too many questions your first week. :p
So what's the first order of business his excellency? Fix the LBP.me tool for the level showcase? Being able to add pictures when you first start a thread in the showcase, or restore Biorogue's level 100 Status!!
Anyways, congrats to both of you guys and good luck to both of you.

What? CC's name should be gre-- *reads post* oh.

Thanks for all you've done CC. I appreciate it, like everyone else does. :)

...And a great congrats to Warlord! I'm already finding the different username colours a bit weird... let me go and cry in that corner over there for a while.

Heh, jokes.

Again, thanks for everything CC. And I don't mean that in a sarcastic way. :)

CC, as others have mentioned above, your contributions to LBPC have made this an incredible site, and it has certainly stood the test of time. We will miss you, and words simply do not convey how grateful we are. You have a bright future ahead of you.

Congrats warlord...still considering a name change...let me suggest "The_Admininator___previously_a_warlord_oh_and_evil _guy_too". :)
Good luck. Let us know how we can help.

Wow! ..and so another page turns.

Very cool CC! Congrats on your new assignment! Thanks so much for all your help over the years. Much appreciated. You have done quite well and been a pleasure.

Warlord... hmmm... not sure what to say to you. :p lol Nah.. seriously.. congrats and good luck! I feel the site is in good hands.

It's sad to see you go CC but I'm glad you won't be to far away.
Thank you so much for all you've done to make this site such an enchanting place.

Congrats Warlord.
May the site be kind and continue to grow under your Admin. :)

Thank you for such a marvelous site CC, I don't LBP would have been the same without a site like this alongside it. By developing LBPC to what it is today you've helped arrange countless friendships and hosted years of laughter. I cannot imagine posting here without knowing your name is in green. Thanks for your years of service and dedication, don't be a stranger.

War, you've got some gargantuan shoes to fill. I look forward to all of your evil schemes (turning this pace into the DB, eh?).

Oh, and Taffey, Blue suits you, very smexy indeed.

Congratulations all and farewell CC.

I never thought this day would come :cry:

But it has, so I'd just like to thank CC for the tremendous amount of time and effort you've put into this little corner of the vast and unusual wilderness we call the internet. LBPC has gone through many changes during my time here, and while I may not always have agreed with your decisions at the time, they have always been for the benefit of the community and, in retrospect have always turned out to be the best thing to do. That's why you were the administrator, not me ;) You've always been incredibly helpful and reliable, even after all the times I've endlessly pestered you about projects that never came into fruition, and the like. So thanks again Mr Buffaloe, I hope you don't disappear like lbp did :p

And to warlord, congratulations! We've never spoken much but I'm sure you'll make a mighty fine admin, and I wish you the best of luck in your new position. Rather you than me :cry:

I believe that this is the start of a new act in the book of LBPC. Speaking of which, we need to name these acts... :rolleyes: I suggest:

Act 1: Genesis (lbp as admin)
Act 2: Golden Era (CC as admin)
Act 3: Calm Before the Sotrm (war as admin) :p

But jokes apart, congratulations for both CC for tolerating people like me for so much time and Warlord for accepting the challenge of tolerating people like me! :D

Whoa! So much change in the past week! It's quite exciting! :) I'm sad to see CC go, but I'm also happy that Warlord has been given such an awesome opportunity. Good luck to both of you, and I wish you both the best of luck. :D

For now though... all hail warlord :D

Good luck Cc, I may not have known you for as long as the others but from my time here you were just as the others said, a great Admin and a very generous and devoted person, you made this site what it is today. Thank you! And good luck to Warlord i'm definite he'll do a great job.

Big thanks for all your hard work ConfusedCartman, you were a fine admin, and you picked the right person for the job, warlord_evil is a great asset to the community :)

Out of interest, does this mean you won't be dealing with the running of the site (including hosting fees) anymore? Will the site be any different because of it?

There are a couple of backend things (hosting included) that I'm managing while warlord gets accustomed to his new role, but eventually he'll be handling every aspect of the site. Being admin means doing lots of different things, so it's definitely a learning process. Especially with a community as big and awesome as LBPCentral's :)

As for whether the site will be different - who knows? As far as I'm concerned, I'm just a community member now. I answer warlord's questions when he has them, but I am intentionally not doing any more than that. It's just not my site to run anymore ;)

Just came here after checking the Playstation Blog. Congrats, CC! You've handled this site for four years as a dedicated boss-man, and I'm sure warlord_evil will make a great, new dictator for these amazing fan forums!

Since the administration of the site has changed hands is the timeframe for the site, which ConfusedCartman has alluded to in the past, still the same?

...Now I feel bad, like I should have seen you go, or something.

...Atleast now I guess you'll be closer to me, so I could finally meet you or something. Congrats for Warlord and CC respecitvely.
